Sydney Sprint Series #7
Macquarie University Sports Complex
I was excited at first, thinking we would get to run on the Macquarie Uni map used for WMOC last year, but it was not to be. Instead, we ran on a blown-up version of a 1:10000 map of the fields and houses on the outskirts of the university, which was sort of disappointing. The map had real issues, too, and a lot of us lost large chunks of time because of it. I ended up 3rd, but over two minutes behind Ezy, who ran fast and managed to avoid trouble one way or another.
Am tired. Will take it easy this week.

Orienteering 4:02:02 [3] ** 21.85 mi (11:05 / mi)

The Super Long World Champs.
An awesome day of sun, fun, and suffering on the North Shore of Sydney. There were 11 of us starting, and the map consisted of a double-sided A3 sheet with 150 controls, course designed by andyhill. The rules are simple_ the first person to get to every 10th control get a point. We then wait for everyone to catch up and restart for the next set of 10. The person with the most points in the end wins.
My main goal was to survive all the way to the finish - we started at Ezy's house in Pymble and finished at Glenn's place in Waverton, where cold beers, fruit salad, sausages, and heavenly muffins were awaiting us.
Right from the start, Mounty set the tone by attacking relentlessly on virtually every round, with the rest of trying to convince someone to chase him. I had very little energy, probably partly due to the heat and mostly due to being out of shape, and so I only tried a couple of attacks. One ended when I went over on an ankle and limped to the finish, and another when Mounty and I both missed a small path leading to the second-to-last control, letting others get ahead. We stopped at McDonald's after 50 controls, and at a convenience store for some Coke after 100. The last fifty controls were a struggle, but we kept moving along, and Andy staged an impressive comeback to win the last two points and tie Mounty for the overall win.
A great day. Thanks for everyone for the company!
Map and pictures later.
P.S. Mounty's GPS said we did 40km. Don't know why mine is off by this much.

Sydney Summer Series - Rozelle Bay / Glebe
My worst summer series effort so far. Feeling tired, physically and mentally and confused by the vagueness of the map. Managed to gash both my shins on a fence, too.

Running 53:38 intensity: (27:26 @2) + (26:12 @3) 6.31 mi (8:30 / mi)

Evening run from home to Centennial Park, then a course that was on the map of the park that Andy gave me, then back home. This was a nice way to see the park and some of its more off-the-beaten-path corners.
